Belonging – noun: to feel safe, happy or comfortable in a place, situation or group because you are welcome and accepted.

Belonging noun: a possession.

From 9-11 October, M&G QLD’s 2024 Conference will explore what it means to belong in all its many facets. We will examine how museums and galleries are embracing inclusivity and working with artists, collections, industry leaders and communities to drive positive change into areas of accessibility, diversity and equity. We will also unpack the real or perceived disparities that exist in society and how we,

as a sector, can work smarter to overcome these and be truly inclusive and equitable cultural spaces that enrich, shape and benefit our communities.

M&G QLD’s 2024 conference is designed to share professional experience

and innovative ideas, enhance knowledge and build industry networks.

Delegates will be inspired by the stimulating program of high-calibre keynote speakers, plenary sessions, workshops and master classes, and be able to take away actionable ideas to apply to their organisations.
